Make a holiday rental property or villa in Asti, Italy your home away from home

Asti is a beautiful city in Piedmont, Italy, which has been completely overlooked by tourists, and remains one of the most staggering, unspoilt cities in Italy. Few places in Italy remain untouched by the influence of mass tourism, yet this beautiful town remains gloriously natural, unspoilt and authentic. Although it is best known for its Asti wines, there is so much more to discover.

Things to do in Asti, Italy

The oldest of Italy’s famous Palio horse races occurs through the streets of Asti. Dating back to the 13th century, the Asti Palio occurs on the third Sunday in September, with the parties, processions and pageantry starting on the Thursday. This is a magnificent time to be staying in a self catering Asti holiday rental, and the best time to really immerse yourself in the unspoilt, authentic excitement of an Italian festival. Horses and jockeys in the race represent the different districts of the town, and each district takes the support of their rider very seriously, further adding to the electric atmosphere that blankets the town during the festival. There are in fact a huge range of festivals and events throughout the summer months in Asti. June, July and August see a great range of theatrical, musical and dance festivals whilst September is an extravaganza of culture, with Asti wine festivals, medieval feasts and of course, the Palio.

Although many visitors still take Asti accommodation in an attempt to locate the fabled hidden gold of Asti, further clues to its whereabouts are very hard to come by. Legend has it that the Romany King, Kopi Kennana, had treasure of immeasurable wealth buried with him in the River Po. The rest of the town does hide a great range of historic treasures though. There are some 120 medieval towers scattered throughout Asti, as well as elegant renaissance palaces, broad boulevards and charming chapels which date back centuries.

Asti is also a gastronomic hotspot. The famous sparkling Asti wines are readily available throughout the town, from the gourmet restaurants to the atmospheric cafes, and the regions truffles are some of the most sought after in the whole of Italy. There are two separate weekly food markets to enjoy, held on Wednesdays and Saturdays, selling all manner of produce.

The countryside that surrounds Asti is perfectly unspoilt, and attracts walkers, horse riders and mountain bikers from all corners of Europe to explore the secluded, natural surroundings.

The house was so well equipped with everything you could wish for . From really decent kitchen equipment ,the knives were amazing ! And very comfortable beds . All the rooms had portable fans and so we had no problem with the heat ,and we were very lucky with fabulous hot ,sunny days . The pool was the best we have ever had at a holiday home ,big and deep enough for us all to play in . David was great at local knowledge and ideas for eating out , though we loved to cook in,meaning we could all imbibe the local wines . We could have done with an extra two days to cross everything off our 'to do' list . Thank you for letting us use your lovely home and thank you David ,for all your help.

The main part of the farmhouse has been sympathetically restored, with the traditional brick vaulted ceilings and the wooden roof trusses giving great character to the building, but with nicely designed modern conveniences and design touches that helped make our stay relaxing. A pleasant courtyard garden with its gazebo made for a great place to eat al fresco and enjoy the view. Mombercelli is well placed for trips to the great Piedmont wineries around Asti and Alba, plus not so far from Milan or Turin for a bit of Italian sophistication.

Turin and Asti were spectacular! Mirko's communication and help was absolutely first class and his friends who dropped by to help out gave us some great local knowledge. Locals spoiled it a little by being very rude at the pool (one lady in particular) and a late night swim and tennis match both Tuesday's we were there but we coped OK with it.
